something. she's right. 12 million jobs no matter what. and governor romney -- >> and you are talking about an entirely different issue. >> not at all. >> it was part of the stimulus plan, rick, quickly though. >> it is not the same as time as 1.9 million per job. ty are long-term changes. >> that exactly the same. it was a stimulus program and they claimed they were going to last an there were 7000 and now 300. >> quick, quick, quick, david, how about trying stable dollar and stop the binge spend more free enterprise in public health and by golly, this country would roar ahead. >> jobs has affected friends of mine and family of mine. i think that is something we need to be paying attention to and it is not just one vote but it is the collective of all of us. >> it is a very important election and important time to be an american. >> no one covered it like neal to the convention and debate. he will be on it right to the end. join neal as he hosts a special live cost of freedom. it is kicking off at 10 a.m.. we'll be back on sunday for a special on sunday. and biggest and brightest name in b
's actually since the company started keeping tabs. nationwide the obama mask is leading romney right now 60-40%, but the latest rasmussen poll shows the president trailing romney by 4% while a poll in "new york times" shows the opposite. the polls are unpredictable. we get the real results on election day. right now we're bringing in the real honest henry from comcast sports net. henry, how are you today? >> did you say honest? >> die. >> did you say honest. i need to you talk to my wife for me. tell her i'm honest. i would be out of the dog house. she thinks i'm a big liar. coming up in sports, two more victories and we can call the g-man 2012 world champions. there's been solid contact in game three. we'll have an update right after the break. plus day giants star catcher buster posy shared a special moment with one of the greatest baseball players of all time. i'm talking about hammer hank aaron. stay with us. sports is next.
for romney, all right? i love that. i love that. chris: well, the question is, is mitt romney really wenning or is this a psychological game in which he's getting the democrats to be demoralized while all this talk of him being ahead? >> beats me. usually you have a gut feeling about it. i have no gut feeling about this election. but i will say this. that calling -- that optimism and saying it's a big deal is more -- is more fundamentally american and more optimistic and more positive, i think, and so i would give romney slightly the upper hand on this message rather than saying you got to go out ask vote. chris: you may not like the things you are wut what happens if we lose the election seems to be the message. >> and that people like to go with a winner if he can project himself as winning it's helpful to him. the group of largely male voters that some democrats are concerned about who might switch secretly almost to mitt romney who are looking for an excuse not to vote for barack obama again, who voted for him in 2008 and aren't happy with the way things are going. once somebody else to
arguments of the campaigns right now. george, you heard andrew talk about how we saw a different mitt romney at the debate, that seems to be the argument that obama and his allies seem to making colin powell. >> on monday night, he agrees with the withdrawal. same thing in iraq and on almost every issue that was discussed on monday night, governor romney agreed with the president. but this is a different set of foreign policy views that he had earlier in the campaign. >> george, that had been an argument that the obama people shied away earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him as andrew said because you might like him. i think people say, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is but tressing the attack. >> if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now
change under of romney-right administration. with more on this, senior fellow for the hoover institute and former chief economic adviser to president george w. bush. welcome back to the show. always grt to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a sense of the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 million more jobs the president obama promised his stimulus would have created by. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for th here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think it's going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has been traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent per yearsince the turna
overall plan. and more on the pamphlet later. and is governor romney's call right or wrong? i'm brenda buttner, it's bulls and bears. we've got gary b smith. tobin smith. jonas max ferris along with tim la camp and steve murphy, welme, everybody. okay. the folks at forbes will tackle the pamphlet plan in one hour, fair and balanced. what about the plan to overhaul the tax code. what is it going to mean for jobs. >> i think it's going to be great for jobs. ovrhauling the taxes is the thing that the governor and hopefully president romney can do. and incents, if that's a word, every individual and corporation out there. provides a path of what they're going to do, what they're ing to pay and if it's simplified and overhauled, it will get rid of hopefully a lot of the special interests, whic takes the government out of the intervention and provides a clear playing field for everyone. this could turn around our economy, if done soon and done right. >> brenda: jonas, we don't know exactly what kind of overhaul we would get and isn't that adding uncertainty? wouldn't that keep people from hi
. but despite objections from women's rights groups romney didn't pull this campaign ad. >> i hope you will join me in supporting richard murdoch. this, of course, after freshman house republican joe walsh of illinois insisted there is no such thing as an abortion to protect a woman's life or health because of "advances in science and technology.". and representative todd akin's infamous remark about women's bodies shutting down to prevent pregnancy in cases of so-called "legitimate rape." >> so doctor, are these extreme remarks by republicans distancing themselves from these remarks, are they what are keeping abortion front and center? >> they are actions. they remind women of people trying to redefine rain rape. the words are bad enough. the actions are worse. >> i disagree, bonnie. i think it's to the less advantaged to keep this conversation going. most of them are concerned about the state of the economy and jobs and that's what they are going to the whole thinking about. >> what we know is abortion is the leading topic for women. 39% to 19% to the economy. with the electorate being 56% wom
trade surplus at our expense. >> mort, what is the answer? >> the fact is romney is right in this sense. they have consistently for decades kept their currency devalued in order to magnify their exports. sell them at cheaper prices. we have been protest that go for decades. when romney can do anything about that i don't know. but the real question is how do you deal in chin with this way without getting into a trade war which would be damaging to both sides? that is going to take real diplomacy and pressure with china. >> in a trade war, who wins mort? >> we do. we have a trade deficit with them of $300 billion a year. >> you can no more win a trade war than you can win an earthquake. everybody knows that. >> nobody will win in a trade war. but we've got to find some better way of balancing the trade. as pat says we have huge deficits in trade with china for decades and a good part of the reason is not because they have a very low wage cost including for a lot of american products but the fact is they keep their currency low to magnify their exports. >> the u.s. cannot win without china
with him. here's the reason why governor romney is gaining among women right now. he is gaining among women. and that's because women care about the economy. women care about the role of government. women care about their children's education. women care about their health care. and more women are living in poverty under this president than any other time in decades. that's why governor romney is winning with women. >> fair point. rachel, one of the things you're seeing, it was tina fey speaking in new york, seem to strike the chord about going beyond abortion, about do you trust women enough to let them make decisions about their own lives. this is how she talked about it. >> if i have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is, i'm going to lose my mind. >> frankly, to be fair, the romney campaign is probably thinking the same thing -- i'm going to lose my mind if we have to keep talking about rape in this election. its association with the republican party that he does not want to be associated with. right, but then he picked paul ryan. they have th
conditioning. you want rich leather? i'll give you leather. romney is saying you want right wing in the primary? i'll give you that. you want centrist in the election? i'll give you that. and the auto rescue is a good example where he was clearly suggest it and in the debate tried to suggest he was for it and i think it's entirely appropriate that the auto cress cue has been so important to obama running so well in ohio. it's a choice -- either government should just sit by and let the market do its thing or government can come in and correct certain outcomes and prevent catastrophe. that's the kind of choice we face in this election. >> what obama is talking about on the trail, first of all, there's no second-term agenda. when he goes off the record with the "des moines register" last week. he gave out a second-term agenda which is nothing like he's been talking about on the trail. >> that's not true at all. >> the corporate tax rates. talking about weeding out immigration. talking about immigration reform, which he has not talked about much in public and a grand bargain with cutting spending
's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbe
. romney right now is trying to make himself moderate mitt. he is in the midst of a moderate makeover. if the president is off the campaign trail he has to act very carefully. >> schieffer: minnesota poll out today, "star tribune" has the race within the margin of error in minnesota. now, we've been hearing some of the romney people who said from the beginning that they thought they had a chance in minnesota. the president is still doing well with independent voters out there. but governor romney seems to be closing the gap when it comes to women voters. again we get back, ruth, to this whole deal of what's happening with the women's vote. >> it's certainly true in the swing states the president is ahead in more swing states than governor romney. however, the president's job approval rating and his number in all of these states is below 50%. that is a danger signal. >> that's not true. it's generally 50% or more. >> no, it's not. >> it is. >> >> i'm having flash backs to debates, guys. >> i won't interrupt you, if you don't interrupt me. >> we should get a lawyer to litigate this. >>
we should be going 70. people though the rest of the world is not right. the first abate mitt romney proved he can meet -- lead the country. lou: aguably he will change the history with that performance. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number one data piss-off thfiscal cliff. so we t have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinionals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the
. >> erin mcpike, i understand you're in ohio right now. governor romney joined congressman ryan on the bus tour, you wrote that the race might not just boil down to the buckeye state. we've all been talking about that. buff it may boil down to two counties, hamilton county and cuyahoga county. give me the rationale behind that? >> cuyahoga county is where cleveland is, the most populous county in the state. we've got over a million people there and about 900,000 voters there. now, president obama won cuyahoga county over john mccain in 2008 by a larger number of voters than he won the entire state of ohio in 2008. they really want to drive up their numbers there and hold their own in hamilton county where i am now in cincinnati, president obama won hamilton county in 2008. but in the 2010 governors erase, ted strickland, a democrat narrowly lost the county to john kasic, the governor there now. you're seeing the most voters in these two counties. that's really important to them. the obama campaign in ohio is telling me they're just basically worried about snow in cleveland on election day
predicting 53/47 win for governor romney. stef snee cutter maintaining confidence right now. who's bluffing right now? >> both are bluffing. because no one knows at this point. what we do know is that the trends of the last few weeks favor mr. romney. the question is, what will interrupt that trend if anything? who knows? >> the question is, andrew sullivan, has the trend already been interrupted? some signs that romney's momentum peaked last week. ohio poll actually stopped polling tuesday night. >> for the last three weeks, the swing state polls haven't changed. they were the same three weeks ago. the bumps that obama got from the second debate has stabilized. unless you know you're right, unless this abc news poll in ohio, which to me is really stark news. >> you mean the ohio poll. >> that changes the equation. the last three weeks, look at all of the swing state polls, everything in them, it's been the same race. for three weeks. >> nicolle wallace, that first debate clearly changed the narrative of this race. >> it served as a light coming on. casting mitt romney in a rather durable w
and mitt romney seems to be right to their campaign matt. -- to rewrite their campaign map. president obama said mitt romney is offering a re run at past policies. mitt romney join markell rupiah -- joined marco rubio tpday. oday. the obama teams as president obama is ready to stand a case of disaster because of hurricane sandy. >> download our new election mobile app to see a picture of your nearest polling place in keep up to the minute with the campaigns. search and download election 2012 on a smartphone where tablet. >> sandy is causing news already before she is technically affecting us. >> a huge storm. winds running about 500 miles out to the center of the storm. monday looks like the target date. i will talk about that coming up. thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with
think that's reflected in the poll numbers, because you're seeing right now, romney is it tied or seems to have kind of a momentum, i guess, moving into the final week and that's what pollsters are saying. i think that democrats feel that this will help, particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority of the electorate, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away some things that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party electorate, which in a very close election, can be really critical. >> susan of the washington examiner, neil of roll call, thank you both for being with us on news makers for this sunday. it's interesting that we as a society have given our information out. >> we were looking in to cyber and cyber security and cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and networks, as a new domain of war. and yet, we realized that maybe one in a thousand people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. and
campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campaign events that were scheduled for today. instead of those campaign events, he went to church and the federal emergency agency to check on storm preparations there. now, the very interesting question that comes up next in this final stretch of the campaign, don, is where are these candidates headed next? we know mitt romney is in ohio tomorrow morning and goes to wisconsin after that, but then it is sort of a guessing game. a senior romney adviser was asked by reporters earlier today, what are you doing in terms of watching this storm? they said, that's basically what they are doing, assessing where they are going next based on this campaign schedule that's been thrown up in the air. don, what is also interesting is
, whether against romney or when obama was up against a generic republican. i think that's right, not much has changed in the last year. >> we're asking the president to do something hard. consumer confidence is at historic lows a long period of time. nbc, "the wall street journal" poll, we ask do you want minor change, major change. 62% want major change. when you're incumbent in a difficult economy and people look for major change, you're trying to do something really difficult and that's be able to give you four more years. the question where you say what's the biggest concern, no new ideas from obama or return to bush, that was 47-47, just like the race. >> that's why romney is beginning to make the argument in the close how i represent the change. i think it is quite interesting. >> it is interesting. mike duffy, thank you for joining us this morning, anna greenberg, we will have you back after the election to see how right or wrong we were. >> we will be much smarter after the election. >> thank you all very much. >>> up next, 2012 campaigns undercard some ballot races we're keeping
rights act. suddenly he was tendering on that, john stossel. john: let's play some clips. romney says he will repeal obamacare. but he wants to keep the popular parts. >> number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. john: that's popular. no one likes the idea that pre-existing conditions are covere but that is not insurance, that is elfare. >> this is what our entire segment should beyond. of simply blowing off your obsession with drug legalization. health care. if we did not repeal obamacar in the next few years john: repeal it but tepee expensive parts. cover the kids. >> 1,000 years of darkness. th is why you have to vote, i don't care if it's mickey mouse. or big bird. [laughter] but romney is far more free market than any recent republican candidates, including george ush. what romney is talking about here is the free-market. and as you say, pre-existing conditions are popular, like big bird. john: if everybody has to cover pre-existing conditions. >> let me finish. no one said everyone has to cover. the answer is the free market it was popular. we will be rovided
that is already been taken for. conservatives understand that. i don't speak for romney. i don't know if i'm right about that, but i suspect. that is just an example of republicans not criticizing military actiohas already been taken. >> so, with the bush tax cuts. he did not get as what we needed. extended beyond fairness up and down the economy, and it made 55 and you care so much about it worse. john: taxes not high enough. okay. >> what exactly makes you think that romney is going to provide3 this booming economy is you talk about? >> well, for one thing, he did in massachusetts. he attended with companies over and over again. he is exactly what the nation needs now. because, as you said, the government does not create jobs. we have trickle-down government. we need government to get out of the wake just to repeal obamamacare, if nothing else happened. if romney diddnot do what i expected to do with the economy, simply to repeal obamacare is going to a -- >> yes. a cia operative told "washington post" editor philip gramm that journalists can be bought and paid for for less than the price of a c
right now? is romney surging as much as the polls appear to make it seem? >> yeah. i think romney is ahead in the race in the national race. i think he is within striking distance of the 270 eelectoral votes he needs, and the areas of the country where he made the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look a
coulter said that romney was being nice to the retard, and i thought the right just can't lose gracefully. they knew they were losing, and they had all of these excuses. just lose. you got served. >> all right. who do you think won? >> a slight edge to obama. >> i got obama. >> you know what is weird? i noticed in the beginning an unusual sponsor for this debate. very strange. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by -- magic mike. dvd on sale tomorrow. this one is on foreign policy. i am bob schaefer of cbs news. >> that is clearly the movie of the year. it seems like a natural fit for the debate. >> absolutely. it is the story of america. hot and sweaty hard body of america. >> i think you can agree, imogen. >> absolutely. >> and what are our foreign policies, but grinding up against other countries for more money. >> on that note from foreign policy to foreign polls. he is popular in france and with those who poop their pants. a pair of polls show obama is huge with foreigners an
the examples i was giving him was if you watch msnbc for example right now, you might as the story about our ambassador being killed. you know that they think it's been a game changing gas by mitt romney, which you do not know about obama's people. there's a lot of things you don't know. i recited the caliber of the liberals on fox news. i mean, until she passed away, former price presidential candidate on the democratic party. they have bob beckel, who i think is the low hard, but he ran mondale's campaign. susan estrich ran to caucuses can pain. you have juan williams. look, i know they're liberals, but there is smart as they come. [laughter] it the best liberalism has to offer. meanwhile in msnbc the people at ever heard a end they were functional representing the conservative argument. i said in the primetime lineup is only one partisan host, sean hannity. so this makes ted koppel's head explode and of course he cites bill o'reilly. i said o'reilly is middle of the road. he believes in global warming, gun control must be a bomb is. koppel said you're saying he's not opinionated? i said n
in missouri and indiana have said about a woman's right thochoose. romney hasn't been able to pull away from those candidates. i think there is issues that are working very much in obama's favor. we will see how this thing turns out. >> congressman, he holds a different position than those candidates -- >> his ads are still up in indiana. >> what's more important -- [overlapping dialogue] >> eric: we have the clock counting down. one thing's for sureto be a lon, election night, probably. thank you so much. >> jamie: eric, as each day goes by, new questions are raised about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. republican senators are now demanding that the obama administration declassify and even make public their surveillance video that turns out was recorded in thedale deadly raid. it is believed there may be audio recordings, of requests for help that night. perhaps the biggest question the republicans want answered was why was america not better prepared to defend a diplomatic compound in one of the most dangerous and volatile areas of the world, particularly on 9/11. woul
romney. that is possibly right. we have had three polls this week, three separate polls, that have shown the state is still very close. that has to be considered a tossup. host: our next call is from durham, n.c., on our independent line. caller: good morning, gentlemen. i think our state remains fairly close. i think it will be a lot about voter turnout. my question is about the impact health care will have a north carolina. i work in a hospital and i have seen sweeping improvements to and quality of care related to health reform. i feel it is not addressed in a lot of the riding that is coming out. what do you think of the health care will have? guest: well, you know i was at a rally last night and republican candidate got up there and said if he's elected he will do everything he can to repeal obama care. so it's still a very popular issue for republicans. and the polling in north carolina still suggests that the president -- that obama care is still not very popular in north carolina although you start taking pieces of that like preexisting conditions and that sort of thing, it becom
. people think mitt romney could be. i want to go back -- talked earlier about this clown campaign, rights, but how we're focusing on small things that don't matter that much. part of it is that we are responding to a marketplace. fair or not, good or bad. media and journalists -- look, i've written a lot of stories in the past months about the manufacturing crisis. and rustbelt states, it's going away and how hard it is on families. nobody cares. they get two commentses on it -- comments on it. it's frustrating, but if i write about trump, i get 100 comments. >> president gives a "rolling stone" interview and says he think romney is a bs-er. that's godden media fla-- gotte media flack. should it? >> i don't think so because we had george bush repeatedly flipping the camera at the camera. i put it on my blog once. dick cheney's famous -- the "go "f" yourself"? >> major league a-hole or something -- >> we don't have to go that far. >> new york times reporter. my suspicion is that -- my suspicion is it was intentional because it was meant to be little rough and tough, you know, the raw obama
in ohio right now is mitt romney running adds that the obama campaign was rebutting about pushing the lie and distracting people from the record. >> romney's narrative is i'm a good business guy so put me in charge of government. yeah, feel free to go run a business somewhere, but that is not the same thing as being good at running government. what i find interesting is what that means in terms of how the president is doing better in ohio among white voters. so we have in ohio obama doing 7 to 11 points better among white voters and white men specifically than he does nationally in part because of this. >> so 850,000 jobs related to the auto industry in the state of ohio. one in eight jobs in ohio is an auto related job. that's huge. and when you add to that the mobilization against sb 5, the anti-collective bargaining bill that did pass the legislature but then the ballot initiative reversed that, that brought together a coalition of white union members with african-americans and latinos that did not go home after that ballot initiative. they are still mobilized and organized. so those t
romney's moving in the right direction. they can't afford four more years of barack obama. >> shannon: something the president has had to talk a lot about and fielded a lot of questions about, of course, the deadly attack in benghazi. four americans left dead and a lot of unanswered questions at this point. the house has held one initial hearing on this. there are a number of investigations underway. what is your impression so far about what have you learned and not been able to learn? >> what's unfortunate, the white house has not been transparent. they promised it, but they have not been candid. yesterday, a local aquilliate in colorado asked the president, did they deny a request for help and the president couldn't answer that basic question. a lot more questions we have four dead americans and people injured. and it's just sad, we have to make sure that it never, never happens again and we can't slow down on the investigation because there is an election in place. i think we are will be slow walked. but there is a lot more to learn and the white house has not been transparent. >>
obama last time and get them to come out and vote for us this time. >> all right. so maybe mitt romney is also taking a two prong way, he's for early voting, too, or maybe he has a bit of romnesia about what his closing strategy is supposed to be. whatever the case, the two strategies that they've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final days. this is serious
